Forum:My hired warrior is attacking me and my pets

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


In one of the mines in mine town I hired a warrior for 5000 credits, all the money I had. Anyway, he's now intermittently attacking me and my pets. Apparently Berserker in this game means attack who's ever near you including your allies. Which is kind of stupid to be honest but that's the way it is I guess.

Before I kill him and lose many hours of progress, is there any way to make him stop attacking me and my pets? And if not, who the hell ever thought that was a good idea? Is there anyway I can tell in the future beforehand if characters I hire are going to stab me in the back or anything? I had no idea this was coming which makes it really suck, I'd like to try to avoid that in the future.

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Edit: sorry, I'm playing Pathos Nethack from the Android Play Store. And the autocorrect changed Warrior to lawyer.

I couldn't figure out how to add a reply on this tablet, I don't see any way to add a separate post, so I had to put my reply to you in this edit.


What variant are you playing? This isn't any variant of nethack I recognize. Nethack also uses gold, instead of credits, and doesn't have any hireable mercenaries (particularly not lawyers). --EasterlyIrk (talk) 16:28, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
